|Title:||The 31 Deg2 Release of the Stripe 82 X-Ray Survey: The Point Source Catalog||Authors:||LaMassa, Stephanie M.
Urry, C. Megan
|Issue Date:||2016||Journal:||THE ASTROPHYSICAL JOURNAL||Number:||817||Issue:||2||First Page:||172||Abstract:||We release the next installment of the Stripe 82 X-ray survey point-source catalog, which currently covers 31.3 deg<SUP>2</SUP> of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Stripe 82 Legacy field. In total, 6181 unique X-ray sources are significantly detected with XMM-Newton (>5σ) and Chandra (>4.5σ). This catalog release includes data from XMM-Newton cycle AO 13, which approximately doubled the Stripe 82X survey area. The flux limits of the Stripe 82X survey are 8.7 × 10<SUP>-16</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP>, 4.7 × 10<SUP>-15</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP>, and 2.1 × 10<SUP>-15</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP> in the soft (0.5-2 keV), hard (2-10 keV), and full bands (0.5-10 keV), respectively, with approximate half-area survey flux limits of 5.4 × 10<SUP>-15</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP>, 2.9 × 10<SUP>-14</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP>, and 1.7 × 10<SUP>-14</SUP> erg s<SUP>-1</SUP> cm<SUP>-2</SUP>. We matched the X-ray source lists to available multi-wavelength catalogs, including updated matches to the previous release of the Stripe 82X survey; 88% of the sample is matched to a multi-wavelength counterpart. Due to the wide area of Stripe 82X and rich ancillary multi-wavelength data, including coadded SDSS photometry, mid-infrared WISE coverage, near-infrared coverage from UKIDSS and VISTA Hemisphere Survey, ultraviolet coverage from GALEX, radio coverage from FIRST, and far-infrared coverage from Herschel, as well as existing ∼30% optical spectroscopic completeness, we are beginning to uncover rare objects, such as obscured high-luminosity active galactic nuclei at high-redshift. The Stripe 82X point source catalog is a valuable data set for constraining how this population grows and evolves, as well as for studying how they interact with the galaxies in which they live.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/24897||URL:||https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.3847/0004-637X/817/2/172
